Cashier (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 24 July 2016
The team at Nesters is so tight and friendly. Our managers are always working hard to ensure that the customers as well as the employees are having the best possible experience. Generally, the customers are very polite, though there are many cases of difficult people. It does get very repetitive, but as long as effort is put into satisfying the customers, they will brighten the day.

Produce Worker (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 17 May 2016
Tipical day would be delivering 110% Customer Service to any customer with in the store. Visual merchandising, stoking and facing product, along with checking dates for heath consummations. I gained lots of knowledge of products, how to properly connect with customers, and fulfill their request. Also time management. Management is always busy, working to fulfill us as a teams needs, but may have to ask once or twice, for reminders. Co-workers are absolutely the best part that makes up for the whole company, enthusiastic, fun, family. Hardest part of my job was to tell customers we currently dont have your product you want, because being part of Nesters you want to have everything for everyone. Most enjoyable part of my job, is the seeing the smiles on our customers faces, and just getting to know the community well, and learn new things about them.
Meat Cutter (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 15 April 2016
I was positioned as a meat staff so my duties were to make sausage from scrap, make burgers, clean floors at closing time, serve customers who request meat from behind our counter, weigh and check all meats to ensure quality and safety. My position here was really laid back I had a great management team and I loved my work. I had to relocate back to Ontario due to Vancouver Rent prices so I was upset to leave my awesome job!
Cashier (Former Employee) – Squamish, BC – 30 March 2014
As a cashier a typical day was memorizing codes to various products of food as we ring them through the till, and greeting\assisting customers. handling various payments of cash, interact, and credit. At the end of the day we would take our till to the office and count the receipts and cash in our till. If other departments needed help I was to gladly step in and help. I helped mostly in grocery, stalking shelves. Management and co-workers were all very friendly and all of us worked together as a team to make a great workplace. the hardest part of the job was memorizing all the codes to all the food products. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing friendly, familiar faces coming into the store as well as working with colleagues.
Grocery Clerk (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 17 February 2014
The shifts can become monotonous. A typical shift starts with filling dairy, sweeping the aisles, filling eggs, and gathering grocery carts left int he parking lot and around the building. The rest of the days are usually spent facing, moving stock from back stock or ends to the shelves, and following potential shoplifters. Benefits are only available for full time employees who continue to work 32 or more hours a week but these benefits also cost $100 each pay cheque. Trying to get time off can be difficulty as there are very few staff members in each department already (except bakery/deli). Several members of management seem to only be there to earn enough money to retire and will frequently leave before their time is up, take extra vacation days not listed on the schedule, and they do not appreciate any criticism. If you can get your foot in the door, it can be a fairly steady job during summer months. the rest of the year, if you're not full-time, expect to have your hours suddenly cut one week to 8 or 12 hours then jump back up to 32 or more the following. It can be all over the place and schedules are only made with one weeks notice so it can be difficult to plan any appointments, classes, or visits from family.
Easy job, does not require much thinking, friendly coworkers, decent pay with raises, friendly customers, good, central location
benefits cost more than anywhere else I've been, Managers do not listen to employees opinions, frequent shoplifters, hours can be all over the place, short staffed
